SOURCE: Redless screen

The white lines on the darker backgrounds are more than likely retrace lines. Usually caused by a leaky capacitor in the horizontal sync circuitry. If the red comes and goes it's probably a dry joint in the red drive. If you're handy with a soldering iron try resoldering the solder joints on the CRT neck board. If that doesn't do the trick then perhaps the drive transistors are on the motherboard. Just look for 3 transistors usually in a row and somewhere very close would be adjustable pots with the letters R.G and B printed near them. Even a simple gentle tapping with a plastic end of a screwdriver around that area may make the red flash on and off. Just resolder around that area and you'll know it's fixed when the red stays on. Just make sure the power is unplugged when working on the set and stay well away from the EHT and power supply areas. They can give you a nasty shock even if it is unplugged. Actually with live chassis TVs it's always best to use an isolation tranformer. If any of this is over your head the say hello to the repairman :-) BMW

SOURCE: Laptop screen has horizontal white lines running across half the screen

Ive encountered laptop screens that are bad, with broken connections or a small carack on the very edge of the screen. I have an old laptop with the very bottom line of pixels dead. But as i push on the edge of the screen they flicker. Try carefully squeezing around the edge of your laptop screen near the lines. Its possible the screen itself is defective and need replacing.

Sound like the cable was lose between LCD panel and Motherboard. You can't do by yourself. Hope the laptop is still under warranty repair.

SOURCE: black and white lines after bios screen before boot up

The issue appears to be cosmetic if the system boots to WIndows and there are no display issues using the system. Some systems I've seen have a bit of video distortion between the BIOS splash screen and the desktop. A couple things may change that. Update the system BIOS and the video driver to the most current available

I got some white patches appeared on my led which is very visible in black back ground which is awful my product is sony vaio E series laptop can any one tell me why does those spots appeared

That's called backlight bleed. It's a known issue with certain models of the LED screens. I had a similar issue with my previous laptop, a Lenovo G560. The only solution is to replace the screen.

Prior to the Windows splash screen do you see graphical issues ( black background, white writing, or bios splash screen) if you don't then the problem is with windows and will need to be reinstalled. Samsung ship laptops with a windows cd and is a fairly basic wizard. If you don't know how to do this google is full of guides. If you however see graphical problems right from turning the laptop on then there is likely to be a hardware fault straight from the factory. Contact Samsung and they will repair / replace the laptop through warranty. I have seen several Samsung laptops brand new from the box do this and It turned out to be a hardware issue and was replaced on warranty. Good luck.

Horizontal white lines 27A43.

You have some bad capacitors. They are located very near and next to your vertical IC. I would guess you would have to replace maybe four of these! Thanks for asking!
